Can the Chicago Cubs Fix Felix Doubront

On Wednesday, the Chicago Cubs traded for left-handed starter Felix Doubront, sending the oft-traveled Player to be Named Later to the Boston Red Sox. Hey, in this slow-moving trade market, this counts as news. Of course, it’s a minor deal, and one that most of us who love to write about baseball hope gets trumped by bigger news during the course of the day. But often times...

Cubs Trade Russell and Speedy Neifi to Braves

Yesteday, the Cubs acquired LHP Felix Doubront for a player to be named later from the Boston Red Sox. A trade that I like a whole lot presuming the PTBNL isn't much and considering Doubront's ability to strikeout many hitters. A move to the NL Central certainly won't hurt his numbers either. Today, the deadline has been rocking and the Cubs big moves were out of the...

Felix Doubront Trade Necessary For Red Sox, Worthwhile Deal For Cubs

Those flashes, however, were accompanied by inexplicable lapses, which eventually led to his demise. Doubront was traded to the Cubs on Wednesday in a deal that was necessary for Boston and worthwhile for Chicago. Doubront, who began...

Doubront Traded to Cubs for PTBNL

Felix Doubront has said openly that he does not appreciate the bullpen role that he has been given by the Red Sox for much of the season.  Doubront indicated that he considers himself a starter, so if he is not to start with the Red Sox he would like to be traded to a team where he would be given that opportunity.  Doubront has also had some poor showing on the mound when he has...

Felix Doubront’s Frustrating Season Hits Low In Red Sox’s Blowout Loss

BOSTON — Felix Doubront hasn’t been shy about voicing his frustration. Now, the Red Sox have just as much reason to be frustrated. Doubront, who is unhappy about pitching out of the bullpen rather than starting, laid a stinker in relief Monday, surrendering six earned runs — he also allowed two inherited runners to score — on six hits and two walks over two thirds of an inning...

REPORT: Doubront Could Be On Trade Block

(Jeff Zelevansky/Getty Images)According to a report by Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe (AKA John Henry's Journalistic Plaything), Red Sox left-hander Felix Doubront might be on the trading block. The rationale postulated by Cafardo cites the recent excellent performances by both Brandon Workman and Rubby Del La Rosa—making Doubront somewhat expendable. One AL GM is quoted...

Boston Red Sox: Young arms stabilizing rotation

For a Boston Red Sox team that has yet to find any sort of consistency amongst the entire roster through 69 games, bright spots have been few and far between. But after injuries shelved Felix Doubront and Clay Buchholz — two important members of last year’s team who had failed to find the same success this season — a duo of young arms have emerged and stabilized what could...

Boston Red Sox: Solving the Felix Doubront problem

Year three was supposed to be the season he broke out. The young, left-handed Felix Doubront came into spring training in noticeably better shape and seemed destined to finally put it all together for a full season after an 11-6 campaign in 2013. Instead, Doubront has done the opposite, and has fallen flat on his face out of the gates, taking steps backwards rather than progressing...
